KATE Middleton said the Queen was doing “fine” – although the monarch found the first day of the anniversary celebrations “very tiring”.
Her Majesty beamed as she joined her family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace yesterday afternoon.
But hours later, officials said she would not be attending today’s thanksgiving service because she experienced some “inconveniences” during the ceremony.
Still, she smiled bravely for the Brits as she lit a bonfire in the grounds of Windsor Castle in the evening.
And today the Duchess of Cambridge has reassured worried fans that the Queen is fine.
It’s not yet known if Brits will see her make another public appearance over the bank holiday.
She will be watching Saturday’s derby, one of her favorite events of the year, on TV in Windsor.
At a reception at London’s Guildhall on Friday, Kate reportedly told an attendee that the Queen had found the day “very tiring”.
Gill Smallwood, who lives in Bolton and runs the domestic violence charity Fortalice, had asked how Her Majesty was.
She said: “[Kate] said, ‘Yeah, she was fine, it was just a really tough day yesterday, and she had a lovely, lovely time.'”
The Duchess also told Ms Smallwood that her children, Princes George and Louis and Princess Charlotte, also “had a lovely time” yesterday.
All three children appeared on the balcony next to their great-grandmother.
The Queen smiled at Louis, who stole the show as he chatted animatedly and grimaced.
Aides said she made the decision to stay home today with “great reluctance”.

She felt unable to attend after considering the “journey and activity required to attend the service at St. Paul,” they said.
Harry and Meghan were among the attendees today.
Cheers erupted as the “nervous” couple arrived hand in hand.
The Sussexes sat apart from William and Kate but appeared at ease during the high-profile occasion, smiling and joking with family members.
Charles and Camilla were the last royals to arrive, stopping to speak to members of the clergy before making their way to their front row seats.
On their walk, Charles paused to blow his daughter-in-law Kate a kiss.
